    Australia have named a very strong squad with a big Melbourne influence.

    Is there a reason Sam Thaiday is carrying all this self-entitlement?

    What I have liked so far is Nations playing warm up games and having training bases in regional and non traditional areas.

    Australia heading over to Fiji.

    Tonga played Italy in Innsifail yesterday.

    Scotland based out of Northern NSW.

    England out of Perth (Ok not regional).

    Is it just me, or has the buildup for this been very low key

    People aren't idiots. Rugby league has 3 good countries. The rest would be destroyed by the worst NRL club.

    I’m in NZ right now and there has been coverage every day in all forms of the press.

    I think people are pretty excited about the strength of the Tongan and Samoan teams who do look good on paper. Australia will be favourites again, but England and NZ will be pushed more this year.

    Maybe it’s just an Australian thing.

    Looking forward to see how they cover the games after years of 9’s boring commentary.

    Typical NRL couldn’t organise a screw in a brothel.
